CORRECTIONS COMMITTEE CONTACT LIST:
For those interested in becoming A.A. volunteers in the correctional facilities in the Lincoln area, here at list of those facilities, as well as information about who to contact if you would like to apply to become a volunteer.
All facilities require the volunteer to fill-out an application and undergo a background check before being admitted into the facility. They also require volunteers to take an orientation class. In general, the facilities want A.A. volunteers who have at least one year of sobriety. If you have a criminal record, you are still eligible to apply, but each facility has its own admission policies and procedures for determining if you will be accepted. The best way to find out what those policies are is to contact the facility directly. If you are cleared to go into one facility, you are NOT cleared to go into the others.
